Bitmap images location(for themes).

Hello, I'd like to know where and how you get to know the location of bitmap images that come with themes. I know some bitmaps come from shell32.dll but what are the other files?

I found this at another website but don't know if it helps you-

C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\<subfolders>
C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\ Microsoft\Windows\Themes\<subfolders>
C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT\<subfolders>

For most graphical things theme-wise (except for icons), they are not located in a standard BMP or other image format and need a special program in order to edit.

This is not what I was looking for but It's nice to know where wallpapers are being kept.


Yep I know about programs like Restorator and Vista builder
I'd like to learn more about the general location of some bitmaps and specific like I will show below.
And I'd like to learn how I can predict where I should look for the specific I look or will be looking for.


PS. I think the background of some places in the explorer are not bitmaps but settings for color. If so I'd like to know where can I change it

To change colors, right click on the Desktop and select personalize. Click on Windows Colors. You can select an item and change it's colors.

I think that most of what you're looking for is in .dll files.

What specifically do you want to do?

I saw the thread with icons. I'm looking for bitmaps in general and those 3-4 I've specified in pictures. I think the one in control panel must be somewhere else.
